Kurt Warner is a Super Bowl champion quarterback and two-time NFL MVP. The Iowa-native quarterback held a 12-year NFL career and earned the top three passing performances in Super Bowl history. Along the way, he and his wife Brenda established First Things Foundation in 2001, a non-profit public charity dedicated to impacting lives in a lasting way by promoting Christian values, and Treasure House, a Christian-based supported living community for young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in 2022.
In 2017, Warner was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and today his story has been brought to life by Lionsgate Films in American Underdog, released in theaters in 2021.
